What Iran is truly about

I’m just a proud Iranian who felt that there was a need for a blog on tumblr that depicted the true Iran and its incredible people.

I will be posting anything that will relate to Iran’s history, culture, media, people, and current events. Feel free to send me any questions, comments, or pictures.

If I’d ask you, who is Joseph Kony, you wouldn’t know. You should. And that’s why I’m going to tell you about him.
Joseph Kony considers himself as a good Christian. He abducts kids, makes little girls go in prostitution, makes little boys become kid soldiers and force them to do horrible things, things a kid isn’t supposed to do. Neither is an adult, no one is. He started the LRA, Lord’s Resistance Army. 20.000 kids have been kidnapped, this needs to stop. And that’s why we need to Make Kony Famous. Let the world know about the horrible things he does, and the thousands of children and parents suffering. 
So come together, at the April the 20th. That is the day, we will cover the night. People in all kind of cities, all over the world meet at sundown & cover the city with posters and stickers of Joseph Kony. To Make Kony Famous. If you want to help these kids and parents, cover the night at 4/20/2012.

THE LEAST YOU CAN DO IS REBLOG TO TO RAISE AWARENESS. 

EVERYONE please read and watch this immediately. It is 30 minutes, worth every SINGLE second of it. Share it with everyone. Talk about it, facebook it, tweet it, do everything you can! Tell ALL your friends and family. Go go go! He must be stopped.  View high resolution

Don’t normally like these but thought it would be interesting for some un-informed individuals

I’m Iranian. No, I am not a terrorist! The Iranians don’t live in a tent on a desert. I speak Farsi/Persian, not Arabic. Iran is pronounced “EERAUN” and not “I-ran” ( It’s not track & field )… News flash: Iran and Iraq are TWO!!different countries. Middle East is a region and NOT a continent, And camels are not our way of transportation. Belly dancing is an Arabic dance (go figure), it never came from Iran. Al-Kharazmi was a Persian mathematician who invented Algebra and added zero to the number system. Algorithm is from his name. Farabi invented the music notes. Razi invented alcohol. We are the first nation to invent dry cell batteries about 2000 years ago to cover cheap metals with precious ones. We invented modern postal system, first modern university. An irrigation system that can run 4 times around the earth. Iran is the first country on earth to have a lion (male) and a sun (female) for its symbol; and the colors red, white, and green for a flag, The oldest country in the world established 3200 BC. A beautiful country. The best of the Middle East.

Soosan Khanoom- Barobax

I wish I spoke Farsi so I could understand this song, because surely it is hilarious.

I’ve literally been obsessed with this song since I first heard it. It’s so freaking good and you just wanna shimmy all day long to it #persiangirlproblems

The Arg-é Bam, Iran, was the largest adobe building in the world. This enormous citadel on the Silk Road was built before 500 BC and remained in use until 1850 AD. On December 26, 2003, the Citadel was almost completely destroyed by an earthquake. A few days after the earthquake, the then Iranian President Mohammad Khatami announced that the Citadel would be rebuilt.

Players of the Iranian women’s national soccer team react after withdrawing from their qualifying match against Jordan for the 2012 London Olympic Games in Amman June 3. The Iranian team were banned from the match on Friday in the second round of qualifiers in protest against guidelines on their veil. The FIFA woman’s association requires that any covering used does not cover the neck and ears. In Iran all women are required to cover their hair in public to conform to the Islamic dress code.

Tabriz, Iran
"In northwest Iran near the Turkish border this ancient capital of Armenia (founded in the 3rd century BC) is now a sprawling industrial city surrounded by mountains. Famed for its calligraphy and bookmaking in the 13th century Tabriz was well placed on trade routes and played an important role in Iran’s history."
